Easy way to Hang Unframed Panels

It is common to think of hanging systems as a way to hang framed art on a wall, but when you need to create art displays by hanging other items such as foam core, thin wood panels, or other materials, it can be quite challenging.

Architectural display held by AS Hanging’s tensioned cable system

To help you meet these challenges, allow flexibility in your design concept, and effectively manage your space limitations, we suggest using Utility Hooks in combination with AS Hanging’s Tensioned Cable System. This display design uses tracks that support cables, and which are in turn, held in tension by springs. The hardware used for this type of display is visually appealing and even considered a design element in some projects. And once the Tensioned System with Utility Hooks is installed, the process of creating and changing your displays is no longer a challenge.

By using Utility Hooks, your “panels” can be sandwiched between top and bottom hooks to display your objects. No hardware is attached to your items, nor are there any permanent marks left behind. And when it is time to change out your display, the top hooks can simply slide up the cable from the top of the panel, and the panel removed. A new panel can simply slide right back into the same location. Or the whole display can be changed with equal ease.

Commercial spaces such as corporate events and conference rooms, as well as educational settings displaying student presentations, are the perfect application for the Utility Hook approach. Almost any manner of substrate or panel may be displayed in this way. Even “found objects”, tin panels, or old license plates, etc. may easily be displayed using this technique.

Utility Hooks are available in two sizes; the “Small” that supports panel up to 3/16 inches and the “Large” for panels up to 5/8 inches.
